Today I will be reviewing...Drum roll, please!........
by Kiersten White
5 out of 5 stars
Hardcover, 335 pages
Published August 31st 2010 by HarperTeen
Synopsis from Goodreads: "Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.
But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal."
I give PARANORMALCY 10 out of 5 stars!!! Oh...you mean I can't do that? *pout* I guess she will have to settle for 5 big, fat and happy stars.
PARANORMALCY was written in first person, which just made it loads of fun. (Evie is hilarious.)
This book was one of the best books I have read in a very long time. I laughed out loud, I almost cried. Almost. But best of all, it had layers of emotions. There was this dark, scariness that pulled all the way through the book. Evie could never cover it with her beautiful sense of humor. And lets be serious, this book is ACTION PACKED! Within the first 20 pages she has already kicked 2 butts! I mean, HOW COOL IS THAT!?! And she's funny about it?! WHAT! You need to stop whatever it is that you are reading right now, and go get this book. Like, now. Seriously. I said stop reading. You can finish reading this post once you are back from getting PARANORMALCY....and a loaf of bread...(seriously, if you are a chicken like me, get some bread) *Taps foot and waits*
WELCOME BACK!! Ok, so Evie is funny and wonderful and the book is very dark if you look under the skin...ok it may just be because I am a big fat chicken, but it was scary to me. It ends well, still at a cliff where you would really love to continue reading, but where you are happy that if it had to end, it ended there. I HIGHLY recommend this book, and her blog...go watch Kiersten Write...WRITE, KIERSTEN, WRITE! (And for the authors out there, Kiersten posts some really great tips about the writing world...)
So, I know it published a while back...does anyone else have a different opinion about the book? Let's play nice, but if you have a different opinion, it may be helpful for others to see it, so feel free to comment. :)
And, rememeber everyone...
HAHAHA!! I TOTALLY have that sign in my living room! (yes guys, thats a picture from inside my house) I love that sign.
